I was drawn to these Five Fantastic Pasta Recipes for Week 43 of #CookBlogShare for their inventive and delicious ways of cooking a kitchen staple.
Welcome to Curly’s Cooking and #CookBlogShare Week 43! I am so excited to be guest hosting this week. #CookBlogShare is a weekly link where food bloggers come to link up their delicious treats and share and comment on each other’s recipes.
Thanks to Michelle at Flipped Out Food for hosting #CookBlogShare last week. There were so many delicious looking recipes linked up, but it was pasta that caught my eye.
Five Fantastic Pasta Recipes
As a child pasta was never a meal I looked forward to eating. We always had the same tomato based pasta sauce which definitely wasn’t my favourite! Then when I moved away to Uni, unlike the majority of the other students; pasta wasn’t my go-to dish. It was only been in the last year or so that I’ve realised just how versatile and delicious pasta can be.
This is why I was drawn to these yummy looking pasta recipes and chose it as my theme for #CookBlogShare Week 43.
The first recipe that caught my eye is from Jacqui at Recipes Made Easy. This Three Cheese Lasagne is packed full of delicious vegetables which help create a tasty meal which would appeal whether you’re vegetarian or not.
When I saw this Cauliflower Cheese Vegan Pasta Bake, I hadn’t even considered it would be vegan. The sauce looks so cheesy and creamy it didn’t even cross my mind. Kate at The Veg Space has created a delicious pasta dish that proves vegan recipes can be full of cheese flavour too.
Now onto a yummy looking meat dish. This Meatball Mozzarella Pasta Bake from Nickki at Something Sweet Something Savoury looks so comforting and perfect for this time of year. Not only does it have meatballs in it, but Nickki has added chorizo too taking it to the next level!
I love meals that consist of throwing together what you have in your fridge and cupboards. Patrick from Looney For Food came up with this Fall Rotini with Roasted Vegetables and Goat Cheese this way. I am a huge brussel sprouts fan and love the sound of the rest of the flavours in this dish.
And finally, we have last week’s host Michelle from Flipped Out Food. I love how deliciously creamy this One-Pot Buffalo Chicken Macaroni Cheese looks! One pot dishes are always a hit in my book and the addition of buffalo sauce elevates this recipe further.
